When I first heard rumors that Charlie Sheen might join America Idol, I thought they were as credible as a Bigfoot sighting. There are a lot of things Charlie is an expert on -- porn stars, tiger blood, getting fired. But music?
Well turns out Charlie actually wants the gig. "It seems so out of the blue that it almost made perfect sense," he said in an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. "I thought this could be a lot of fun," he said. "Seriously ... I'm genuinely interested. It's so different, it could be radical."
Sounds crazy right? But it could really happen. Nigel Lythgoe told TMZ that if he was brought back to executive produce season 12, he would push to get the Anger Management star on board.
During a sit-down with Jay Leno, Charlie admits he isn't exactly qualified for the job. His music experience doesn't go far beyond playing air guitar and drums. "I could be helpful and give these kids some guidance without leading them to suicide," he joked. Well, at the very least he is the best example ever of the pitfalls of partying too hard.
And in all honesty, I think he'd be fantastic! He may know nothing about pop music, but he can't be worse than Ellen DeGeneres. Can you imagine all the awesome, wacky one-liners? I'd watch just to hear the craziness that would undoubtedly come out of his mouth.
Do you think Charlie Sheen would make a good American Idol judge?
